Fruit Juice Gelatin (before there was Jello)

Ingredients per serving:
1 TBS Unflavored Gelatin (preferably beef)
1 cup juice (choose your favorite)
1 pinch of salt or liquid minerals
1 tsp-1 TBS sugar/cream of tartar mix (optional)

Mix gelatin, salt and sugar/COT mix together, if using.  Sprinkle over juice and wait until dissolved. (A minute or two.)  Heat in a pan on medium/low while stirring occasionally, until clear.  Chill until firm.  If making a large batch, you can dissolve gelatin into a smaller amount of juice, then add the remainder of the juice after heating to help cool it down faster.  Reduce liquid if you wish a firmer end product.  Real Orange Juice has a lot of minerals and solids  in it and will make a slightly different texture gelatin.
